Among her many talents, pop star Taylor Swift is not widely known for her interest in historic architecture.
Yet the world-famous pop star is putting her considerable resources behind a project to restore the former home of Hollywood icon, Samuel Goldwyn.
Swift bought the family home of iconic Hollywood producer, Samuel Goldwyn for US$25 million last year, and has set about restoring it to its original condition.
The Beverly Hills City Council have been in full support of the work.
“This is one of the great estates in this city," said Noah Furie, vice chair of the council's Heritage Commission.
"I’m thrilled that whoever the owner is, they’ve found it important to keep this house and spend the money to restore it because it’s no small thing to do” she said.
Goldwyn, who co-founded Goldwyn Pictures, which later merged into MGM, and his family owned the estate for more than 80 years.
Swift's architect, Monique Schenk, said, "We’ve preserved and maintained a lot of the elements and those that were deteriorating, we’ve replicated.”
